We're really proud that our Disability Confident status has been upgraded to the level of 'leader'. The upgrade follows work carried out by our HR and Employment teams, who submitted the evidence needed to achieve the new status.
Prior to the submission we set up a focus group to ask staff with disabilities a series of questions relating to their work environment, the process through which they were employed at Advance and how their training and support needs are met.
Jagdeep Soor, Advance's Head of Employment and Skills commented, "This is tremendous news for Advance and puts us amongst the elite number of organisations who have DC Leader status. This will also add great value to our bidding for new work and establish us even further within the employment support sector."
